Personally I wouldn't do it unless it's just some old junk bass that you want to do this just as an experiment but expect nothing dramatic out of.
My personal choice of this sort of thing is not the sliding pickups which I think give too little change between pickups but rather three pickups which is easy to do and still gives a nice ability to have a variety of tone selections.
Not only does it seem that the sliding pickups are too much work to install for too little tone changes, but also I worry about the huge hole you have to cut through the bass right in the main force lines down the neck. Sure a solid body doesn't change tone much, but a huge hole like that can't be doing anything good to tone, sustain, etc..
